How about Strome, DeHaan and Dipietro (who Vancouver can afford to amnesty buyout) for Schneider and a #5pick?
Isles would not 'trade Strome for Schneider in a heartbeat'.

Isles are faced with 2 top 6 forward spots, that the local press says Snow hopes can be filled internally: 1st line rw and 2nd line center.

With Moulson scheduled to become a ufa in 2014, Snow may have another 1st line spot open.

Nabokov's 37, not pushing 40. Local press reported a) Isles most skilled goalie prospect was diagnosed with a B12 issue, but is expected to fully recover and b) Snow wants to sign Nabby to an extension.

Isles will either pay Dipietro's $1.5m per buyout, like they paid Yashin's buyout, Witt's buyout and Bates buyout. With Wang looking to sell the team, he's not on the hook for that $1.5m. The next owner will be.
